Subject: Love the show but songs out of order
I've been looking forward to jamming to this on the anniversary, but the setlist is right but the songs play out of order for me. What's up?

Well, nothing can really be added to what's been said of so many great ones in what is easily one of the greatest GD tours...Sugaree really does swallow everything. Everything that follows is in its wake.

I always loved the way DP3 sounded. The complete board is well worth hearing; not a slacker in this show.

Subject: Well ok maybe a few more...
(The lowest rating's for me not doing my homework)
Add to my previous list Minglewood, Ramble On Rose, Brown Eyed Women, and Good Lovin'! Still, I stand by how I feel about DP 3.

Subject: It was my first GD show
I was blown away!!! to be there close to the front and watching Jerry play this beautiful and amazing guitar, Phil, Mickey, Billy, Keith, Donna what an amazing show One of the Best I have ever seen. The music sounded so good and Wharf Rat then Estimated Prophet I was gone in heaven. Where I realize Ihad been all night starting w/Help on the Way, Slipknot, Franklin Tower. I had my Blues for Allah tshirt on. So Did Mickey Hart. Awesome!

Subject: Awesome Killer Show!
This show is the fucking shit! Without a doubt, this is the best show of 1977 (except maybe the 5-7-77, 5-8-77, and 5-9-77 shows at Boston Garden, Cornell University, and Buffalo Memorial Auditorium). Then again, all the May 1977 shows are awesome!

Help on the Way -> Slipknot! -> Franklin’s Tower is easily a top-3 of all-time, and one could argue this is the best sequence ever performed! Wharf Rat, Terrapin, DEW, and then Sugar Magnolia for the encore is about the best ending to a show you can get! The band is totally on, and Garcia is in a class by himself, when it comes to this amazing show!

Dick’s Picks Vol. 3 only released 8 songs from Pimbroke Pines:

1. El Paso
2. Peggy-O
3. New Minglewood Blues
4. Friend Of The Devil
5. Ramble on Rose
6. Brown Eyed Women
7. Good Lovin'
8. Sugar Magnolia

Try to find the others on-line somewhere! Virtually impossible… Guess what? I have the entire concert burned on CD. Before was shut down, I was able to download every other song from this concert. Consequently, I have all 24 songs from this incredible mind-blowing concert!!!!! And the quality and clarity of these songs is second-to-none!

Doesn’t get any better than this, everybody! This is the show that everybody wants, but that most people don’t have.

If you want this show, feel free to contact me and we can trade, or something. I’d be happy to burn this show, in exchange for another rare show that you may have that I don’t have.

Check out my other reviews from other awesome Grateful Dead shows!!
